If you are going to Louis Backyard or have a dog that loves salt water check it out.

This is just a small beach next to Louis'. Some dogs love it. Not mine. I think he didn't care for the salt water. Part of KW charm but i wouldn't build my day around it... read more

This is just a small beach next to Louis'. Some dogs love it. Not mine. I think he didn't care for the salt water. Part of KW charm but i wouldn't build my day around it. Easy walk, easy parking. So try it. Your dog might prefer the dog park (fenced) just up the road near the White Street pier.

Although this beach is small and alot of the sand is eroded away, it does have a perfect little bunch of palm trees the makes the beach look really nice in pictures. Our dog has been here many times and loves to play with other dogs both in the water and out. We were glad to see that they finally... More

This is a tiny slice of beach dedicated to dogs...so small, it's not worth the trouble...find another beach for your dog up the keys....not many beaches themselves are dog-friendly...Ft. Zach and some other state parks alllow dogs on leashes, but no dogs allowed on beach areas or in the water...Sombrero beach in Marathon is dog friendly...leashed dogs please...:)

We have been here with our dogs early in the mornings. We always met nice people and even it is small we enjoyed this spot. I apreciate that Ket West has a dog park. I like visying Key West because it's dog friendly. A lot of stores along Duval street offering fresh water for the dogs.

Went there for a day visit. We asked a local shopkeeper about nice beaches around the area. He gave us a map and pointed us toward South Beach at the end of Duval Street, Dog Beach and another beach at the end of Simonton Street. I cannot believe it that we walked for 18 blocks back and forth to see... More

We watched some dogs play in the water at the very small dog beach while having drinks at Louis' Back Yard. It is sandy and the dogs were enjoying the romp in the water.

Very tiny beach area but there was enough room for my Golden to swim in the ocean. He loved it. Went there 3 times to let him swim and cool off.

They call this a dog beach, but it is so small, a dog can't even stretch their legs there. The day we visited with our dog, the water happened to have a lot of sea weed in it, so we didn't even let her get in.

Nice little sandy beach to spend some time with your pooch. Parking can be tough and there were man o' war washing up every day we were there last week so be very careful
